We keep and treat all personal information in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Protection of Personal Information Act4 of 2013.

Under no circumstances shall Elgin Adventure Centre be liable for any indirect or consequential damages, or special damages arising out of or relating to its rendering of services or failure to render those services.

Rainy Day Policy

We’d love to think we can control all the elements of a tour, but unfortunately, rain and bad weather is not one of them.

We have a policy in place to ensure that you, our valued guests, get the most out of a rainy day tour with us.

On the day of the scheduled tour, Elgin Adventure Centre will solely make the decision regarding the suitability of the weather conditions for the tour. The decision will be communicated to you as soon as possible. We take the below approach when it comes to touring on a rainy day:

  1. Cycle in the rain if you are happy to do so. If you are not happy to cycle in the rain, then you need to follow steps 2 or 3 below.
  2. Do the tour by vehicle if it’s raining too hard, and only if you are happy to do a vehicle-driven tour. If you do not want a vehicle-driven tour, then you need to follow step 3 below.
  3. Reschedule the tour to an alternative convenient date for you subject to Elgin Adventure Centre availability. Only if you are unable to reschedule the tour to an alternative date, will a full refund of the tour fee be applied.

Someone from our office will be in touch with you via phone, text, or email on the morning of the tour to confirm the day's plan and activity.

Please feel free to get in touch with us should you have any concerns about the above.
